In Germany an “official” 93-pages report was drafted by a scientific panel appointed that is very negative about the lockdown in Germany under the guise of the coronavirus “pandemic”. This report has become quite controversial.
Stephen Kohn, the whistleblower who leaked the report, has since been suspended from duty.
Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, who is in charge of the ministry that drafted the report, had this to say about the report:
If you start analyzing papers like that, then pretty soon you’ll be inviting the guys with the tin foil hats to parliamentary hearings.

See some excerpts from the following story on this draft report (unfortunately the full report is in German).
• The danger is obviously no greater than that of many other viruses. There is no evidence that this was more than a false alarm.
• A reproach could go along these lines: During the Corona crisis the State has proved itself as one of the biggest producers of Fake News.
(…)

More people are dying because of state-imposed Corona-measures than they are being killed by the virus.
The reason is a scandal in the making:
A Corona-focused German healthcare system is postponing life-saving surgery and delaying or reducing treatment for non-Corona patients.
(…)

“Therapeutic and preventive measures should never bring more harm than the illness itself. Their aim should be to protect the risk groups, without endegearing the availibilty of medical care and the health of the whole population, as it is unfortunately occurring”
“We in the scientific and medical praxis are experiencing the secondary damages of the Corona-measures on our patients on a dialy basis.”

On 13 May 2020, a “scientific” looking report was published that shows that 2/3 of the excess deaths in England and Wales was NOT caused by COVID-19. This suggests that 20,000 deaths (of the 30,000 excess deaths) were caused by the draconian lockdown measures.
David Spiegelhalter, chair of the Winton Centre for Risk and Evidence Communication at the University of Cambridge, said that Covid-19 did not explain the high number of deaths taking place in the community.
At a briefing hosted by the Science Media Centre on May 12 he explained that, over the past five weeks, care homes and other community settings had had to deal with a ‘staggering burden’ of 30,000 more deaths than would normally be expected, as patients were moved out of hospitals that were anticipating high demand for beds.

Of those 30,000, only 10 000 have had Covid-19 specified on the death certificate. While Spiegelhalter acknowledged that some of these ‘excess deaths’ might be the result of underdiagnosis, ‘the huge number of unexplained extra deaths in homes and care homes is extraordinary. When we look back . . . this rise in non-covid extra deaths outside the hospital is something I hope will be given really severe attention.’ He added that many of these deaths would be among people ‘who may well have lived longer if they had managed to get to hospital.’

The following report shows that immunity from prosecution for care homes in the USA is associated with more “COVID-19 fatalities”.
This report draws a strong association between nursing home fatalities, corporate ownership, and immunity from prosecution and third-party lawsuits.The data shows that 77 percent of total deaths come from states that gave immunity to corporations who owned nursing homes and healthcare facilities; moreover, 76 percent of total nursing home deaths come from states that have legal immunity status for these facilities.
(…)

Important Facts
•Legal immunity facing the COVID-19 apex kills: As of May 10, 2020, 62,031 deaths out of 80,796 total deaths come from states with some variation of corporate immunity during the COVID-19 pandemic.
•Of the ten states with the highest fatality rates, eight have corporate immunity and represent 93 percent of all fatalities, or 63,187 deaths. New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Michigan, Pennsylvania,Illinois, Connecticut, and Louisiana rank at the top of case fatalities.
(…)

•By calculating the average deaths per facility with fatalities by state(absolute number of NH deaths/number of NH facilities with fatalities), once again, New York and NewJersey lead in first and second place, with 12.6 and 9.2 average deaths per facility ,respectively (Figure 2). The national average death per facility is 3.6, which six of the twelve states that have nursing home immunity surpass.
(…)

•In looking strictly at the death rate in the nursing home population (absolute number of NH deaths/number of NH residents), we find that eight of the twelve states with immunity surpass the national average, which is 2.1 percent (Figure 3).
(…)

CONCLUSION
It is no coincidence that states that gave blanket legal immunity to for-profit businesses and corporations are the same states with the highest case fatality rates.

The following “scientific” looking paper describes that masks don’t prevent infection with the magical, mutated, novel coronavirus - COVID-19...
It would be a paradox if masks and respirators worked, given what we know about viral respiratory diseases: The main transmission path is long-residence-time aerosol particles (< 2.5 μm), which are too fine to be blocked, and the minimum-infective-dose is smaller than one aerosol particle. The present paper about masks illustrates the degree to which governments, the mainstream media, and institutional propagandists can decide to operate in a science vacuum, or select only incomplete science that serves their interests. Such recklessness is also certainly the case with the current global lockdown of over 1 billion people, an unprecedented experiment in medical and political history.

Following is an interesting interview with Knut Wittkowski, who argues that the social distances strategy to combat the pandemic is counterproductive. Wittkowski said the standard cycle of respiratory diseases is 2 weeks, after which "it's gone" if people were allowed to lead “normal lives”.
See some quotes:
You cannot stop the spread of a respiratory disease within a family, and you cannot stop it from spreading with neighbors, with people who are delivering, who are physicians — anybody.

[W]hat people are trying to do is flatten the curve. I don’t really know why.
But, what happens is if you flatten the curve, you also prolong, to widen it, and it takes more time. And I don't see a good reason for a respiratory disease to stay in the population longer than necessary.

About 80% of the people need to have had contact with the virus, and the majority of them won’t even have recognized that they were infected, or they had very, very mild symptoms, especially if they are children.
So, it's very important to keep the schools open and kids mingling to spread the virus to get herd immunity as fast as possible

At the start of April, biotech company Vir Biotechnology and UK pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) announced their partnership in working on coronavirus “treatments and vaccines”.
GSK invested $250 million in return for a 5.6% stake in Vir, making it the third largest shareholder

San Francisco-based Vir is also backed by Bill Gates (him again!), Japanese investment giant SoftBank and Abu Dhabi (the United Arab Emirates).

Investment firm Iconiq Capital has built a large stake in Vir Biotechnology; and is now Vir's eighth largest shareholder with a 2.8% stake worth $113 million.

On 20 March, data in Denmark showed that one COVID-19 case on average would infect another 2.1. This information was held back because it was "not desired politically".

Instead Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen in a speech used, and exaggerated, the already debunked 2.6 figure:
If one person infects three others and they each infect three, then nine people are infected. And if the nine again infect three, then we are at nearly 30 infected.
If 2.1 would have been used the number of infected would be 9.2. Even if 2.6 would be used this number would be only 17.6 (so a little more than half of “30”).

Denmark's top epidemiologist Kåre Molbæk and head of the Danish Health Authority Søren Brostrøm wanted to publish the new infection rate of 2.1.
On 12 March, Queen Margrethe II of Denmark had changed the Danish Health Authority from a "regulatory authority" to an "advisory" one. This allowed the government to ignore the Health Authority ‘s conclusion that Covid-19 was not sufficiently dangerous to impose medical martial law in Denmark:
The Danish Health Authority continues to consider that covid-19 cannot be described as a generally dangerous disease, as it does not have either a usually serious course or a high mortality rate.

Months before the corona “pandemic” was started, the biggest investment fund in the world, BlackRock where the Trump family invests their savings, authored a plan to go “direct” in the next crisis, blurring the lines between government fiscal policy and central bank monetary policy.
The plan was rolled out in August 2019 at the G7 summit of central bankers.

On 17 September 2019, the U.S. Federal Reserve would begin an emergency repo loan bailout program, loaning hundreds of billions of dollars a week by “going direct” (similar to the BlackRock plan).
Then because of the coronavirus crisis, for the first time in history, US Congress handed over $454 billion of taxpayers’ money to the Fed that will be leveraged into a $4.54 trillion bailout plan.
Nobody will argue that the crisis was caused by government policy instead of any coronavirus...

In the United States, some 85% of the stock market is owned by the richest 10% of Americans.
Buying stocks will effectively make the wealthy even richer, while income inequality is already at the highest levels since the 1920s.

The BlackRock plan also explains the fiscal stimulus of the CARES Act with “direct” $1200 checks and deposits to “poor” Americans and Paycheck Protection Program loans and grants to small businesses.

BlackRock plays an important role in implementing the plan that under the guide of the coronavirus pandemic. BlackRock has even been hired by the US Federal Reserve, the Bank of Canada, and Sweden’s central bank to implement parts of the plan.
The Federal Reserve hired BlackRock to “direct” buy $750 billion in corporate bonds and bond ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds). The BlackRock-run program will get $75 billion of this money to eat the losses on its corporate bond purchases, which will include its own Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) of which BlackRock is one of the largest purveyors in the world.

Three of the 4 authors of the BlackRock plan have previously worked at the central banks in the U.S., Israel, Canada and Switzerland.
Stanley Fischer: in 2005 went from Vice Chairman of Citigroup to become Governor of the central bank of Israel. In 2014 he became a Governor and Vice Chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve. After he resigned at the Fed in October 2017, he became a Senior Advisor at BlackRock in January 2019.
Philipp Hildebrand: was Chairman of the Governing Board of the Swiss National Bank from 2010 until 2012 (he abruptly resigned over a scandal in which his wife trades in currencies about which he had inside information). Hildebrand is now Vice Chairman of BlackRock and a member of its Global Executive Committee.
Jean Boivin: Deputy Governor of the Bank of Canada in 2010-2012, when he became Associate Deputy Minister at the Department of Finance of Canada. He joined BlackRock in 2014.
Elga Bartsch: has previously worked at Morgan Stanley in London: https://wallstreetonparade.com/2020/06/ ... -the-plan/
(http://archive.is/8Y7p3)


See the following nuggets from the white paper...
A practical way of “going direct” would need to deliver the following: 1) defining the unusual circumstances that would call for such unusual coordination; 2) in those circumstances, an explicit inflation objective that fiscal and monetary authorities are jointly held accountable for achieving; 3) a mechanism that enables nimble deployment of productive fiscal policy, and; 4) a clear exit strategy. Such a mechanism could take the form of a standing emergency fiscal facility. It would be a permanent set-up but would be only activated when monetary policy is tapped out and inflation is expected to systematically undershoot its target over the policy horizon.

(...)

Any additional measures to stimulate economic growth will have to go beyond the interest rate channel and ‘go direct’ – [with] a central bank crediting private or public sector accounts directly with money. One way or another, this will mean subsidizing spending – and such a measure would be fiscal rather than monetary by design. This can be done directly through fiscal policy or by expanding the monetary policy toolkit with an instrument that will be fiscal in nature, such as credit easing by way of buying equities. This implies that an effective stimulus would require coordination between monetary and fiscal policy –be it implicitly or explicitly.
https://www.blackrock.com/corporate/lit ... t-2019.pdf
(http://archive.is/Numac)


From the Netherlands, a similar policy was proposed in March for Europe; calling for the European Central Bank (ECB) to “go direct” in the next crisis.
Chapter 7 details a policy for the Eurozone that’s very similar to what BlackRock proposed in August 2019...
The ECB is reaching the limits of its monetary policy space, with negative interest rates and the limits of the sovereign bond buying programme in sight. This should induce fiscal policy makers to play a more active role in stimulating the economy were a new economic downturn to strike. However, it seems prudent for the ECB to also explore new options for monetary policy that could support such fiscal efforts to counter deflationary pressures. Following fiscal action, monetary policy space could be created using new instruments that have a more direct effect on the economy.

They refer to the “policy framework” of the BlackRock paper.
The effectiveness of such a policy framework would depend on it being implemented well in advance of the next downturn. A clear and credible stimulus strategy helps investors to understand what will happen and may thus reduce the amount of stimulus needed.

A scheme like this has sometimes been referred to as “helicopter money”, a term coined by Milton Friedman: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helicopter_money


---------------------------------------------
On 5 June, the World Health Organization (WHO) updated its reasons for why the sheeple should all be wearing a face mask. The main reasons for why healthy people should, isn’t to prevent them from being infected with the coronavirus (brainwashing seems to be the most important reason):
The likely advantages of the use of masks by healthy people in the general public include:
• reduced potential exposure risk from infected persons before they develop symptoms;
• reduced potential stigmatization of individuals wearing masks to prevent infecting others (source control) or of people caring for COVID-19 patients in non-clinical settings;
• making people feel they can play a role in contributing to stopping spread of the virus;
reminding people to be compliant with other measures (e.g., hand hygiene, not touching nose and mouth). However, this can also have the reverse effect (see below);

• potential social and economic benefits. Amidst the global shortage of surgical masks and PPE, encouraging the public to create their own fabric masks may promote individual enterprise and community integration. Moreover, the production of non-medical masks may offer a source of income for those able to manufacture masks within their communities. Fabric masks can also be a form of cultural expression, encouraging public acceptance of protection measures in general. The safe re-use of fabric masks will also reduce costs and waste and contribute to sustainability.

The Wall Street Journal (of Trump’s and Rothschild’s friend Rupert Murdoch) looks forward to the end of humanity!
A piece about the wonders of transhumanism for which the coronavirus hysteria can be used...
https://youtu.be/QQxcuHF_QEM

Here’s the WSJ article.
Eternal life through advanced technology seems like a pipe dream for a society that, until recently, had trouble manufacturing enough masks to save doctors’ and nurses’ lives. Yet Covid-19 may turn out to be just the kind of crisis needed to turbocharge efforts to create what its advocates call a “transhuman” future.With our biological fragility more obvious than ever, many people will be ready to embrace the message of the Transhumanist Declaration, an eight-point program first issued in 1998: “We envision the possibility of broadening human potential by overcoming aging, cognitive shortcomings, involuntary suffering and our confinement to planet Earth.”

McKinsey has reported that up to one-third of US workers could be unemployed by 2030 because computers and robots have made man obsolete, adding around “60 percent of occupations have at least 30 percent of constituent work activities that could be automated”.

According to economist David Rosenberg:
the central bank is now becoming a hedge fund.
Adding low-quality corporate credits to its balance sheet is a whole different game.
… keeping zombie companies alive, rendering fundamental analysis and price discovery obsolete, and leading to a complete misallocation of resources.



Bloomberg reported that unemployed US workers should have received $214 billion in benefits, early June, but had “only” gotten $146 billion.
The Kentucky Career Center kept people waiting 10 hours before their unemployment claim help was handled: https://www.globalresearch.ca/america-d ... my/5716506


Earlier this month, the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) and Americans for Tax Fairness (ATF) reported that American billionaires have seen their combined net worth grow by $584 billion in the 3 months since the Covid-19 “pandemic” was started on 18 March and made more than 45 million Americans unemployed.
Image

Since 18 March, the combined wealth of America's billionaires has grown from $2.948 trillion to $3.531 trillion.
The five richest billionaires in the U.S. - Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett, and Larry Ellison - saw their collective wealth grow by $101.7 billion from 18 March to 17 June 17.

According to Frank Clemente:
Their wealth increased twice as much as the federal government paid out in one-time checks to more than 150 million Americans. This orgy of wealth shows how fundamentally flawed our economic system is.

The Trump administration finally released the list of the more than 650,000 “small businesses” that got $150,000 or more in low-interest loans from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).

The Foremost shipping company of the family of Donald’s Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao got $350,000 to $1 million in PPP loans.

The eugenics Planned Parenthood movement received at least $40 million in PPP loans across the US.

Grover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform Foundation received $150,000-$300,000 in PPP loans.

Dozens of law firms received PPP aid, including the New York law firm headed by President Donald’s long-time attorney Marc Kasowitz, which received a PPP loan worth $5-10 million.

Not really surprising that also several members of Congress or their spouses got PPP aid: https://www.bbc.com/news/business-53324891
(http://archive.is/5s8Vk)


At least 3 businesses of the Chabad-Lubavitch Kushner in-laws of Donald’s Jewish daughter Ivanka Trump got Paycheck Protection Program loans.
The Observer Holdings LLC that owned the news company Jared Kushner controlled got $350,000 to $1 million in pandemic relief.

Two of the Kushner family's New Jersey hotels - Princeton Forrestal and Esplanade Livingston - also pulled PPP loans: https://www.salon.com/2020/07/08/three- ... out-funds/

Global private membership club Soho House received up to $22 million in 6 different PPP loans.
Soho House is backed by Bill Clinton’s (former) buddy, the billionaire Ron Burkle...

Kanye West has recently announced to run for president, maybe in a ploy to take black votes away from Joe Biden...
I doubt that he is, but Kanye has claimed to be a billionaire.

Kanye West’s brand Yeezy benefited from the Paycheck Protection Program by receiving a loan between $2 million and $5 million.
Kanye's sister-in-law, Khloe Kardashian, also received $1-2 million from the PPP: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... esses.html


CloudCommerce in which Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale owns a great deal of worthless penny stock got $780 thousand in PPP loans: https://www.motherjones.com/2020-electi ... -ppp-loan/


About 950 “Jewish” organisations received more than $500 million in total...
According to Spokoiny: “The best predictor of who would get a loan and wouldn’t is the banking partner they used”.

The controversial Anti-Defamation League (ADL) was 1 of 7 “Jewish” organisations that received a Paycheck Protection Program loan of $5-10 million: https://forward.com/news/450356/sba-loa ... ions-jccs/

In mid-May, Trump fans supporters started cheering that President Donald ended financial support for the World Health Organization (WHO) and COVID-19 relief, as yet another Trump victory against the “globalists”…

In early June, the Trump administration announced a $1.16 billion donation to the Bill Gates founded GAVI. This sum won’t be donated all at once, but from 2020 to 2023.
The budget for fiscal year 2021 includes $290 million for GAVI.
In fiscal year 2018, the US donated an estimated $281.6 million to the WHO.

After President Donald stated the US will no longer fund the WHO, the Gates Foundation and GAVI promised to pay more. Get it?!?
GAVI can now take the $290 million from the US and funnel it to the WHO (even a little more than the $281.6 million the WHO got in 2018).

At the same time this will increase the control GAVI (thus Gates) has over the WHO.
Bill Gates says “thank you Donald”: https://www.thelastamericanvagabond.com ... nded-gavi/


One of the reported symptoms of COVID-19 is the decrease of the oxygen level in the blood of the patients, preceding the complete collapse of their health....
One of the promoted treatments for COVID-19 is anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ).

Some people (relatively many Africans) have a hereditary disorder that breaks apart red blood cells that makes them less able to transport oxygen throughout the body.
Most of these patients can live with this condition without problems.

Unless they get one of about 40 medical drugs that can make this disorder worsen rapidly, making the oxygen shortage severe and acute, this can even be lethal.
The worst of these (potentially lethal) drugs are those for malaria like hydroxychloroquine!

However, HCQ was a long time ago identified to be one of the drugs (3) that cause severe damage to erythrocytes in cases of hereditary glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency [the hereditary disorder I’m discussing in this article].

1-2 days after the start of such treatment a very severe clinical picture with weakness, dizziness, respiratory distress and signs of organ damage develops.

Another possible cause of death of coronavirus victims is Fresenius Propoven that is given to sedate patients on ventilators.

The problem is that Fresenius Propoven is a dangerous drug that can overdose the patients/victims: https://blog.nomorefakenews.com/2020/07 ... -patients/

One of the results of the coronavirus police state is that small businesses are bankrupted, while the big corporations take an ever growing market share (owned by the fabulously wealthy or the giant investment funds including BlackRock and Vanguard)
Eventually, the overall economy will recover, more or less. People will need to buy things and pay for services. But the coronavirus will radically reshape Main Streets across the country, accelerating changes long in the making — chain stores will replace mom-and-pop businesses, some storefronts will remain vacant, and cash that once went into local hands will be redirected to Amazon and Walmart. (Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos owns The Washington Post.) The pandemic will reinforce and exacerbate what were already the two key economic trends of our lifetime: consolidation and inequality.
(…)
Concentration will also grow as the strongest companies buy up weaker ones that nonetheless have valuable brands and other assets — just as JPMorgan Chase, the least shaky of the major banks, absorbed Bear Stearns and Washington Mutual during the 2008 financial crisis and emerged as the largest bank in the country. Or weaker companies will be taken over by private-equity firms flush with cash, hunting for bargains.
(…)
the post-coronavirus American Dream will be accessible only to children of the fortunate: Get an elite education, work for Google or Goldman Sachs, and start a technology company or become a partner at a private-equity firm.

West Virginia Governor Jim Justice got a $1-2 million in April and another $5-10 million Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan for his luxury Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs.

Hobby Lobby king David Green, associate of smugglers all over the world got a $2-5 million PPP loan for his Museum of the Bible with dubiously acquired artefacts.

Ayn Rand Institute board member Harry Binswanger explained in May why they would “take any relief money offered”:
It would be a terrible injustice for pro-capitalists to step aside and leave the funds to those indifferent or actively hostile to capitalism.

Of course we wouldn’t want tenants to be prevented from paying what they owe the Trump Organization.
Dozens of tenants at buildings owned by the Trump syndicate received funds. More than 20 businesses at the Trump-owned 40 Wall Street received government loans of at least $20 million: http://web.archive.org/web/202007091115 ... institute/
(http://archive.is/G4Zha)


The wealthy receiving low-interest PPP loans include members of Congress and their families, $14 million in relief funds:
At least nine lawmakers and three congressional caucuses have ties to organizations that took millions of dollars in aid.

The dentist Albert Hazzouri, a frequent visitor at Donald’s Mar-a-Lago, asked for a huge PPP loan.
A hospital run by Maria Ryan, close to Donald’s lawyer and former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani, requested more than $5 million.

The online Daily Caller that was founded by Trump supporter and FOX News host Tucker Carlson, received up to a cool $1 million.
The TV network and website Newsmax, owned by another confidante of President Donald, Christopher Ruddy, got a loan of $2-5 million.

According to Bureau of Labor Statistics figures already 47.2% of Americans are unemployed.
Many parents cannot pay the food their children “need” (probably nothing compared to the suffering Yemenis) as nearly 14 million children in the USA went hungry in June, that’s 10 million more than in 2018, and almost 3 times the number of children who went hungry during the “Great Recession”.

I hate to tell you that the economic collapse will hit even harder in the week of July 25, the last week of the CARES act increase of $600 in unemployment benefits.
The moratorium on evictions from federally subsidised housing will also end that week: https://dissidentvoice.org/2020/07/covi ... le-suffer/

The coronavirus pandemic could result in some 28 million Americans being evicted, one expert said.
We have never seen this extent of eviction in such a truncated amount of time in our history. We can expect this to increase dramatically in the coming weeks and months, especially as the limited support and intervention measures that are in place start to expire. About 10 million people, over a period of years, were displaced from their homes following the foreclosure crisis in 2008. We’re looking at 20 million to 28 million people in this moment, between now and September, facing eviction.

It isn’t only the US that suffers from the orchestrated economic collapse.
In the first 6 months of 2020, 2,500 children in the UK were admitted to hospital with malnutrition – double the amount of the same period in 2019.

Some people (relatively many Africans) have a hereditary disorder that breaks apart red blood cells that makes them less able to transport oxygen throughout the body.
Most of these patients can live with this condition without problems.

Unless they get one of about 40 medical drugs that can make this disorder worsen rapidly, making the oxygen shortage severe and acute, this can even be lethal.
The worst of these (potentially lethal) drugs are those for malaria like hydroxychloroquine!
Here are some excerpts from one of Rappoport’s sources...
This hereditary trait is particularly common among ethnic groups living in areas with malaria. The modified G6PD gene offers advantages in the tropics. It makes its carriers resistant to malaria pathogens. However, G6PD deficiency is also dangerous if those affected come into contact with certain substances found in, for example, field beans, currants, peas and a number of medicines.

These include acetylsalicylic acid, metamizole, sulfonamides, vitamin K, naphthalene, aniline, malaria drugs and nitrofurans. The G6PD deficiency then leads to a disruption of the biochemical processes in the red blood cells and – depending on the dose – to mild to life-threatening haemolysis.

The debris of the burst erythrocytes subsequently leads to microemboli, which block small vessels throughout the organs. What had caused the illness and death of the young man from Nigeria remained unclear at the time.

I looked at the drugs that can cause severe hemolysis in G6PD deficiency and got really scared. One of the substances that is called very dangerous in all forms of this enzyme deficiency is the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ).

(…)

In a chloroquine/hydroxychloroquine study by Oxford University (NCT04303507) with a planned 40,000 participants, the risk of G6PD deficiency is also not mentioned. In another large study by the Pentagon, though, there is an explicit warning to exclude G6PD deficiency patients from the study.

The following graph, based on information from the WHO database, shows how many studies on Covid-19 and HCQ have been initiated – and how few of them take enzyme deficiency into account.

Because of the coronavirus lockdown, in the UK an estimated 1,752 more people died from heart and blood-vessel problems in late March, April and May than “normal”.
This is just one of the intended consequences of the lockdown...

Cardiovascular deaths in care homes were 40% higher and in private homes 34% higher than usual.
By contrast, hospital attendances for heart attacks was 40% lower than in the spring of 2019: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... blems.html


Out-of-hospital prescriptions for the drug midazolam more than doubled in the UK in April compared to the previous months. Midazolam can depress breathing, which can be fatal, and has been used for “euthanasia”.

Whistleblowers have complained about the misuse of sedatives: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... demic.html


Rosemary Frei argues that the high death rates in care homes were created on purpose: https://off-guardian.org/2020/05/26/wer ... n-purpose/

Dr. Moncef Slaoui, leader of the White House’s coronavirus vaccine Warp speed program, won’t have to divest his big pharma investments or be subject to ethical disclosure rules.
Moncef Slaoui has extensive ties to big pharma, including as a former executive of pharma giant GlaxoSmithKline, and the biotechnology company Moderna, who are both involved in developing Covid-19 vaccines and have received hundreds of millions in government funding.

Slaoui is also a director of the Swiss Lonza Group AG that is working with Moderna on a Covid-19 vaccine.

Slaoui is also a partner at Medicxi, that invests in pharmaceutical industry, and sits on the board of companies that Medicxi has invested in, including as chairman of the board at biotech medical firm Galvani Bioelectronics.
Galvani Bioelectronics was started in 2016 with funding from GSK and Google and specialises in bioelectronic “medicines” – implantable electronic devices labelled a new class of “medicines”

Two watchdog groups have demanded that Slaoui be listed as a government employee or a “special government employee” to force him to disclose conflicts of interest.
Because Slaoui is labelled as a “volunteer contractor” he is not required to adhere to federal disclosure rules.
According to Public Citizen:
The contractual arrangement that regards Dr Slaoui as merely a private contractor appears unwarranted and designed primarily to allow Dr Slaoui to maintain an extensive web of conflicting financial interests without the need to divest of, recuse from or disclose those conflicting interests.

In April more than 175,000 businesses in the US closed, most of them because of the lockdown.
By 15 June, there were still nearly 140,000 total business closures since March 1. This shows that almost 80% of these businesses have remained closed.

Among those with the highest rate of business closures are shopping and retail (27,663 closed), restaurants (23,981 closed), beauty (15,348 closed) and fitness (5,589 closed).

Probably more businesses will close with increased job losses ahead.
States like Florida, Texas, and California are again locking down: https://www.yelpeconomicaverage.com/yel ... eport.html

The “world’s richest person” Amazon founder Jeff Bezos added a record breaking $13 billion (£10 billion) in a single day to his fortune. Since January, Bezos has become $74 billion richer to a grand total of $189 billion.
Bezos’s fortune has swelled by Amazon’s rising share price as hundreds of millions of people trapped by the lockdown ordering their needed stuff through the internet. Amazon is worth 70% more than at the start of the year. On Monday alone, the share price rose by 8%.

Bezos is now $71 billion richer than the “second richest man in the world”: Microsoft founder Bill Gates.
Bezos owns 11% of the Amazon’s shares. Bezos would be even richer, if it wasn’t for the costly divorce from his ex-wife MacKenzie last year, who got 25% of his Amazon shares. The boom in Amazon’s share price, increased her fortune by $4.6 billion on Monday and she is now the “world’s 13th-richest person”.

While Bezos or Bill Gates are labelled the “richest person in the world” in reality their billions pale in comparison to Queen Elizabeth’s trillions: https://www.theguardian.com/technology/ ... st-one-day


In the UK, Chief Executive of the NHS Simon Stevens explained: “Nationally we are now in the process of block-buying capacity in independent hospitals”.
This means hospitals are paid to keep beds empty: https://off-guardian.org/2020/06/25/cas ... ronavirus/


It is estimated that more than 200,000 people could die because of delays in healthcare and other effects of the corona martial law, a government report has warned.
25,000 of these expected deaths will happen within a half year after the start of the lockdown: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... warns.html


Over here in the Netherlands children show complete contempt for the preposterous “social distancing” rules. Maybe part of the reason for “social distancing” is that children see their parents for the fools they are (when they insist that they keep their distance from strangers)...

But in Thailand schoolchildren are social distancing like this.

In locked down Australia a whopping 139 died because of the “COVID19 pandemic” (until 24 July 2020).

Isn’t it strange that at the same time the deaths from flu dropped from 287 to 36 (from 2019 to 2020)?!?

This week we were told that, in the UK at least, anyone who has had a positive Covid test and who then died – from any illness – would be recorded as a coronavirus-related death. No matter when they die.
This means that someone could have tested positive in March, with no symptoms of Covid at all, and who then died in July, would be recorded in the official figures, as having died of Covid-related causes. Even if they were hit by a bus.

Even more weird is the fact that there does not seem to be any time limit to this. So, you could test positive in March 2020, then die in March 2040, and still be recorded as having died of Covid. I doubt this will happen, but it could.

To be honest, I have known something very strange has been going on with the UK data for some time. The UK has not provided any figures on how many people have recovered from Covid-19. In almost all countries, figures are provided on the total number of cases, the total number of deaths, the number of active cases and the number who have recovered.
https://www.rt.com/op-ed/495421-inflate ... ity-rates/

Also in the Netherlands no figures are provided on the amount of coronavirus recoveries (in Dutch): https://www.rtlnieuws.nl/nieuws/nederla ... n-die-zijn

WHO & World Bank predict "World at risk” – Sept. 2019

Post by Firestarter » Wed Jul 29, 2020 3:43 pm

In September 2019, the WHO Global Preparedness Monitoring Board published the "A world at risk" report...
I guess it’s just a coincidence that this was not too long after the August 2019 BlackRock “going direct” bailout plan in the next crisis.
I guess it’s also just a case of their great “analytical skills” that they predicted “severe economic impacts” as the result of a “respiratory pathogen pandemic”. Nothing suspicious about any of that!


See some excerpts.
Countries, donors and multilateral institutions must be prepared for the worst.

A rapidly spreading pandemic due to a lethal respiratory pathogen (whether naturally emergent or accidentally or deliberately released) poses additional preparedness requirements. Donors and multilateral institutions must ensure adequate investment in developing innovative vaccines and therapeutics, surge manufacturing capacity, broad-spectrum antivirals and appropriate non-pharmaceutical interventions. All countries must develop a system for immediately sharing genome sequences of any new pathogen for public health purposes along with the means to share limited medical countermeasures across countries.


Progress indicator(s) by September 2020

• Donors and countries commit and identify timelines for: financing and development of a universal influenza vaccine, broad spectrum antivirals, and targeted therapeutics. WHO and its Member States develop options for standard procedures and timelines for sharing of sequence data, specimens, and medical countermeasures for pathogens other than influenza.
• Donors, countries and multilateral institutions develop a multi-year plan and approach for strengthening R&D research capacity, in advance of and during an epidemic.
• WHO, the United Nations Children’s Fund, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, academic and other partners identify strategies for increasing capacity and integration of social science approaches and researchers across the entire preparedness/response continuum.

(..)

Financing institutions must link preparedness with financial risk planning.

To mitigate the severe economic impacts of a national or regional epidemic and/or a global pandemic, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank must urgently renew their efforts to integrate preparedness into economic risk and institutional assessments, including the IMF’s next cycle of Article IV consultations with countries and the World Bank’s next Systematic Country Diagnostics for International Development Association (IDA) credits and grants. Funding replenishments of the IDA, Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria (Global Fund), and Gavi should include explicit commitments regarding preparedness.

(...)

The world is not prepared for a fast-moving, virulent respiratory pathogen pandemic. The 1918 global influenza pandemic sickened one third of the world population and killed as many as 50 million people - 2.8% of the total population (16,17). If a similar contagion occurred today with a population four times larger and travel times anywhere in the world less than 36 hours, 50 - 80 million people could perish (18,19). In addition to tragic levels of mortality, such a pandemic could cause panic, destabilize national security and seriously impact the global economy and trade.

(...)

Progress indicator(s) by September 2020

• The Secretary-General of the United Nations, with the Director-General of WHO and Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, strengthens coordination and identifies clear roles and responsibilities and timely triggers for a coordinated United Nations systemwide response for health emergencies in different countries and different health and humanitarian emergency contexts.
• The United Nations (including WHO) conducts at least two systemwide training and simulation exercises, including one covering the deliberate release of a lethal respiratory pathogen.
• WHO develops intermediate triggers to mobilize national, international and multilateral action early in outbreaks, to complement the existing mechanisms for later and more advanced stages of an outbreak under the IHR (2005).
• The Secretary General of the United Nations convenes a high-level dialogue with health, security and foreign affairs officials to determine how the world can address the threat of a lethal respiratory pathogen pandemic, as well as managing preparedness for disease outbreaks in complex, insecure contexts.
